Roll #57 – Rollei Vario Chrome

_DSC7783
Rollei Vario Chrome (35mm, 36 exposures, ISO 200–400)

Last year (or the year before?) I bought a 5-pack of this slide film. Only through testing by other people it was revealed to be old expired film stock. So it’s nice packaging, but you’ll get mixed results.

I think I’ll try to sell the other 4 rolls I have left. The colors are quite moody and can be nice, but I’m kinda over the expired look.

Edit: After a couple of days I’m not so sure anymore. I start to like the colors. Maybe I *will* use the rest myself.

  1. I normaly use long time expired slide film for cross processing, I overexpose it one step and mainly use it on bright sunny days. This makes some very interesting retro color look, but the look is pretty different dependig on the film. If you´re interested my latest post is captured on Fuji Provia 400 (expired 2006).
